Lemon Buttermilk Waffles have quickly become one of my favorite ways to spruce up my buttermilk waffle recipe. They add just the right amount of freshness and spark to the buttermilk waffle recipe I developed and have used for years.
To prepare the batter, I’ve modified my buttermilk waffle recipe with the change of utilizing whole milk instead of buttermilk. Then, you’ll add the juice of two large lemons and allow it to sit for about five minutes to allow the milk to begin forming a homemade buttermilk substitute. I’ve also scaled down this recipe to serve four, instead of the large batch recipe I provide for my buttermilk waffles.
Preparing the lemon to add to the light and fluffy batter immediately perks up the entire kitchen as you are zesting and juicing the lemon. It’s definitely an irresistible smell!
The flavor of these Lemon Buttermilk Waffles goes perfectly with warmed maple syrup and immediately makes you think of spring and summer.
If you enjoy lemon, these waffles definitely need to be on your must-try list soon.
They are out of this world delicious.
Here’s how I make them.
